2016 is a big running year for me as I plan to complete my first ultra run. My goal will be to finish as I have not run this distance before and I haven’t done a marathon in any form for 5 years.
To date my race plans include:
Saturday 13th February Dukeries 10 – 10 miles on the Robin Hood Way through Sherwood Forest. I’ve done this before and have a time to beat…
Saturday 27th February Belvoir Challenge 15 – 15 miles on tracks and trails around the Vale of Belvoir. I’m told this is very muddy but the cake is great!
Sunday 6th March The Longhorn half marathon – another trail run in Sherwood Forest
Saturday 19th March Coniston 14 – a 14 mile road race around Lake Coniston. Yes, it’s a road race but I’ve done it before and I love it!
Saturday 14th May Dukeries 30 – my first ultra, again on the Robin Hood Way
Saturday 18th June White Peak trail run – 15.5 miles around the Peak District
Saturday 23rd / Sunday 24th July – Thunder Run (in a team of 4/5)
Saturday 20th August – Peak District intro ultra – another 30 miler, this time a hilly one
Add to this list cross-country league events and parkruns – it’s going to be a busy year!
